Summer Officers

Summer President


Elena Perez

Email: pereze4@rpi.edu

Bio:

Hey ya! I’m Elena, your summer pres. If I’m not making vegan dinner items or learning the 5 different types of Pacific Salmon from Perkins, you can usually find me fixing a bike at the Troy Bike Rescue or planning our next dope club event! I’m also a self proclaimed nerd. If you couldn't tell from the fact that I chose math as my major, maybe the fact that I play Dungeons and Dragons will prove it. Come find me tearing it up at ladies climbing night, or slamming some D20s on a Friday Night.

Summer Vice President


Cormac Ramsey

Email: ramsec2@rpi.edu

Bio:

I'm Mac! I'm from Philly and am in it for the long haul in my big pickup truck. I enjoy winter mountaineering, backpacking, and being outdoors. I have gotten into climbing since I've joined ROC, and I can name almost every tree in the Northeast. Come on a trip with me and find out what ROC has to offer!

Summer Pit Chair


Nick Meyer

Email: meyern4@rpi.edu

Bio:

My name is Nick Meyer (though you may know me by my gym name: Advanced Climber, Shirtless). I can sniff out a gumby 1 mile away on a clear day in the Gunks. I lead trad 5.17s like it’s nobody’s business. And I think bouldering is the inferior climbing discipline (sorry, not sorry). You can find me in the Pit teaching a climbing tutorial or just chilling in my Lulu Lemon pants and my Five Ten approach shoes. I’m only joking about the just chilling part— I am always ready to climb. Always.

Email: cerrar@rpi.edu

Bio:

G’day, mates! I’m Becca, your president!! I’m probably on an adventure (maybe even to the other side of the world) right now, but if i’m not, i can be found tearin’ it up on the roc wall, teaching some sick rolls in my kayak, breaking ankles in soccer or spray painting a mountain scene onto my coffee table. I can also give tips on how to look as good as me while running a spartan race!!

Hey everyone!!!!! I'm your T̶r̶e̶a̶s̶u̶r̶e̶r̶ Vice President, Lachlan and I’m from the great state of Michigan (yeehaw). Some of my favorite hobbies include baking breads, playing Catan, debating the merits of proper apple cider production, destroying my enemies in ROCCER, and crushing high peaks (full packin’ it up Allen ftw). You might also find me tearing up some cross country ski or mountain bike trails, but who's to say.

Secretary


Jesse Norman

Email: normaj2@rpi.edu

Bio:

Hey Boss Man, I’m your Secretary all the way from the deep boonies of Wisconsin. I’m usually hiking up in the Daks; it’s always a beautiful day up in the mountains eh? When I’m not running up trails I’m probably biking, running at disgustingly early hours, or ripping my black ranger around (I wish it were blue). Also if you ever coming hiking with me and get hurt, don’t worry, I always have my superglue on me.

Brian Anderson

Email: anderb5@rpi.edu

Bio:

Heyyy I’m Brian, and I’m your cairn editor !! !! I love hiking and climbing — rock and ice alike, cuz climbing season never ends babyyyyy — and anything else that gets me off campus and away from my work. If I’m not busy voice-crack-crying over (and later impulse buying) expensive AF gear, you’ll find me sewing more patches on my favorite flannel, roasting the few people on campus who tolerate me, or sipping my Semi-Famous Peppermint Cocoa™.
WRITE FOR THE CAIRN! Will trade good memes in exchange if you ask real nicely.
